|It doesn't look like much, |
but believe me: it's way better
There's still plenty (but plenty) to do: empty the yard of the last of the weeds, plant a bunch of seeds, then assess what space is left and go buy and plant some more plants and seeds. But I'm hopeful. I am, after all, as I detailed earlier, an optimist deep down. The trick is to keep the garden steadily in my consciousness.
I am hereby planning a daily visit "down under" (the garden is on a terrace below the house, so out of sight—and out of mind if I don't actively add it to my list of daily chores). I just need to advance past my love of digging and planting, and learn to appreciate the joys of tending and, eventually, harvesting. I can do it! I can!
